The hosts and guests on MSNBC’s Morning Joe were all in agreement that a bunch of “rich white guys” voted to take away people’s health care coverage on Thursday.

For at least two minutes, the recently engaged Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough and guest Donny Deutsch spoke over a picture of the GOP celebrating in the White House Rose Garden after passing the American Health Care Act.

Mika said the photo looked like a “ribbon-cutting ceremony,” and Scarborough and Deutsch argued that the photo would be used in numerous campaign ads for Democrats during the next election cycle.

“I want you to look at this picture of a billionaire surrounded by a lot of millionaires…they’re all middle aged and older white guys, and they are all going to be facing constituents next year who are going to tell them stories about how they voted to take away their health care,” Scarborough said.


“That image … that’s the ad going forward,” Deutsch agreed. “There’s no moral compass, there’s no political compass … and what are we looking at? A bunch of fat, middle aged, rich white guys.”
